To celebrate National Family Literacy Month, the Holbrook’s Title I Program will sponsor a Family-School Reading Night at the South School on Wednesday, November 12 from 6:30-7:30. The staff hopes to captivate students’ attention by engaging them in the magic of outstanding literature, while modeling read-aloud strategies for parents.
Plan on the entire family wearing their favorite pajamas when you join us for this special evening. Milk and cookies will be served. Please complete the attached form if you plan on attending and return to school no later than Friday, November 7, 2014.
The South School Soldiers Club would like to send our deployed military some tasty treats to brighten their day!
We are asking the students and staff to consider sharing some of their Halloween treats. In addition, if you would like to send them something small that will help pass the long days, we are looking for things such as playing cards, small Frisbee, small note pads and pens, small travel games, magazines or any small fun items you think they would enjoy! The candy and “fun” items will be collected and shipped in care packages
to our local military deployed overseas.
Students and staff can bring in their wrapped candy and “Fun” items beginning Monday, November 3rd. We will continue to collect items for the entire week.

|Student Safety Reminders
|Pick Up/Drop Off - Please do not stop in front of the school building. Pull around to the farthest parking lot. This will allow buses and cars to get off of South Franklin Street much quicker.
Buses - When buses are loading or unloading in front of the school building and red lights are flashing, cars should not be passing.
South Franklin Street - Parking in front of the yellow pole on the south side creates a visibility issue for the crossing guard. Please do not park there if loading or unloading.
Speed Limit/Crosswalk - Please keep your speed at or below the 20 MPH posted limit. Stop for anybody in crosswalks.
Thank you for keeping South School students safe!
